Jason Day has arrived at The Australian Golf Club in Sydney to find pristine playing conditions as he ramps up his preparation for the Emirates Australian Open beginning on Thursday.

The former world No. 1, who is making his first appearance in his home national championship since 2013, has dipped to 12th in the world after a difficult year during which his mother, Dening, was ill.

He has not won a tournament since May, 2016. But his form at the tail-end of the 2016-17 season on the United States PGA Tour was strong, and he has said recently that he is hellbent on climbing back to a No. 1 world ranking.

“I know in my heart I will climb that mountain,’’ he told ABC Grandstand on the weekend....

Golf - Ariya uses birdie to claim CME Group Tour title - SBS

4300219 golf-ariya-uses-birdie-to-claim-cme-group-tour-title-sbs

Ariya started her day with a bogey, but she made birdies on four of her last six holes to finish the fourth round with a five-under 67 and a four-day total of 15-under-par 273 on the Tiburon Golf Club.

"This week, to be honest, I had no expectations at all," said Ariya. "I really wasn't thinking about the outcome any more at all. I really thought only about the things I could control. And I have so much fun this week."

Lexi Thompson and Jessica Korda finished in a tie for second.

Thompson held a one-stroke lead after 17 holes, but she missed a two-foot putt for par on the 72nd hole.

"I wasn't even thinking about it. I putted great the whole day," Thompson said, according to Golf World. "I did my routine, I read it. It wasn't obviously a very long putt. I guess maybe just a little bit of adrenaline. ... I guess it's just golf. Crazy things happen like that. I'll move on."

That dropped...

Westwood: Aussie Open my favourite win - Golf Australia

Lee Westwood

Lee Westwood kisses the Stonehaven Cup after his win in 1997.

Lee Westwood isn’t playing in the 102nd Emirates Australian Open at the Australian Club this week. But many of the 44-year old Englishman’s thoughts will be with those that are. Exactly two decades on from claiming the Stonehaven Cup at Metropolitan in Melbourne, the ten-time Ryder Cup player still calls his play-off victory over then world number-one Greg Norman, “my favourite win.”

  Which is saying a lot. Over the course of his 25-year professional career, Westwood has finished first as many as 42 times around the world.

  “I was playing great at the time, on a bit of a roll,” he says of what was his third victory in five weeks. “I’d won the Visa Taiheiyo Masters in Japan - the first time I had ever successfully defended an event - and the Volvo Masters in Spain just before that. And it was not long after my Ryder...

Prime land at golf course - Wangaratta Chronicle

4300229 prime-land-at-golf-course-wangaratta-chronicle

MORE land in the city’s west end looks likely to open up if a section of Wangaratta Golf Course is approved for rezoning tomorrow night.

A 59-lot subdivision and housing development on 7.98 hectares of land is the end goal for the golf club but for this to take place part of the course needs to be rezoned from Special Use Zone (SUZ) to General Residential Zone (GRZ).

Councillors decided in February to move the issue to an independent panel process because five of the 12 submissions to the amendment remained unresolved.

The panel’s report to be presented at tomorrow’s Wangaratta council November meeting has concluded that the amendment is “strategically justified”.

Reasons the panel gave included that it was consistent with the Population and Housing Strategy 2013, and the Hume Regional Growth Plan, while adding to the supply of residentially zoned land in a unique setting.

Golf-Fleetwood wins Race to Dubai title as Rose falls short - SBS

4300235 golf-fleetwood-wins-race-to-dubai-title-as-rose-falls-short-sbs

A win by either Rose, second in the points standings before the tournament, or leader Fleetwood would have guaranteed them the Race to Dubai title and a $1.25 million bonus.

As it turned out, with Fleetwood sitting in the clubhouse after a scrappy final found of 74, Rose needed only to finish alone in fourth to take the title.

Rose looked in complete control of the tournament and was cruising after 11 holes, but he bogeyed three of the next five to slip down the leaderboard.

It still went to the wire, however, and if Rose had holed from the front fringe for eagle at the 72nd, he would have snatched the Race to Dubai crown.

It was not to be, however, as his putt drifted left of the hole, meaning Fleetwood took home the glory, with Rose finishing in a four-way tie for fourth on 17 under par after a final round 70.

The season finale at Jumeirah Golf Estates was won by Spain's Jon Rahm,...

VIDEO: Lexi Thompson shockingly misses 2-foot putt to lose LPGA finale, POY race

668 shares

In a season marked by so much success but also heartbreak, Sunday’s finish was an appropriate mixed-feelings ending for Lexi Thompson.

The 22-year-old captured the season-long Race to the CME Globe for a $1 million bonus and the Vare Trophy for lowest scoring average for this LPGA season with a strong T-2 showing at the season-ending CME Group Tour Championship.

The performance was her eighth top-two finish in a remarkable awarding-winning campaign.

But it was also her sixth runner-up in 2017, and she agonizingly missed out on sweeping all the awards.

Thompson came to the final hole Sunday at Tiburon Golf Club with a one-shot lead at 15 under and left herself a two-foot par putt to get herself in the clubhouse one ahead of everyone at that number.

Essentially, Thompson had a near tap-in, and if it dropped, Ariya...

Cook wins RSM Classic, earns trip to Masters

4300263 cook-wins-rsm-classic-earns-trip-to-masters

ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. (AP) -- Austin Cook was chased by proven PGA Tour winners all day at the RSM Classic.

Now the Arkansas player is one of them.

The PGA Tour rookie held off veterans Brian Gay, Chris Kirk, Kevin Kisner and Brian Harman on Sunday at the chilly, windy Sea Island Club's Seaside Course.

Cook closed with a 3-under 67 for a four-stroke victory over J.J. Spaun. The victory in the final PGA Tour event of the calendar year gave Cook a spot in the Masters next year.

''It was definitely exciting ... real brutal with the wind,'' Cook said. ''I got off to a slow start but I was able to keep my head level and know there was a lot of golf to be played. With the wind and those conditions, a lot could happen.''

Cook birdied three of his last four holes after the three-shot lead he began the day with slipped to one over Spaun. Cook made a 14-foot birdie putt at No. 18 to finish at...

Cameron McCormick to Caddie for Jordan Spieth at Australian Open

4300267 cameron-mccormick-to-caddie-for-jordan-spieth-at-australian-open

NAPLES, Fla. – Lexi Thompson can take a punch.

You have to give her that.

So can Ariya Jutanugarn, who beat Thompson in the gut-wrenching conclusion to the CME Group Tour Championship Sunday at Tiburon Golf Club.

They both distinguished themselves overcoming adversity this season.

The problem for Thompson now is that she’ll have to wait two months to show her resolve again. She will go into the long offseason with the memory of missing a 2-foot putt for par that could have won her the championship, her first Rolex Player of the Year Award and her first Rolex world No. 1 ranking.

Thompson took home the CME Globe $1 million jackpot and Vare Trophy for low scoring as nice consolation prizes, but the Sunday finish was a lot like her season.

It was so close to being spectacular.

She was so close to dominating this year.

Michelle Wie, at heart, isn’t a golfer as much as she is an artist. Her game is infused with creativity at every turn — and more often than not, that creativity spills over into her style.

Like at the 2015 Evian Championship…

This week, at the LPGA Tour’s season-ending CME Group Tour Championship, Wie unveiled another new look: A short, dyed blonde look.

And what was inspiration behind her new look? It came when she was on bed rest following an emergency appendectomy back in August.

“It probably happened around day three of cabin fever. I was just really bored,” she said. “I just told would my mom to grab the kitchen scissors and just to cut all my hair off. I kind of went crazy after being in bed for that long.”
